Poderzhanye Yadernye Bomby So Sklada V Moskve
According to the author, over the last 3-4 years diversions of radioactive materials have become more commonplace, but the materials stolen have been only nuclear garbage. He asserts that the only end-buyers have been police, security officials, and journalists. He did report, however, that 200 grams of uranium were seized from a Russian tourist in Milan at the end of 1991. One month later, one kilogram of uranium was found on the Austrian border.
